The M Chinnaswamy pitch should aid our world class spinners more.

Verdict

Fans are behind the idea of preparing pitches to assist our spinners. But as we have seen in our last three games, even if the spinners do well it is the performance of the fifth bowler that has affected the result. So for the first time the majority is perhaps not right. If players like Patel/Bhatkal/Aravind get assistance from the pitch, they and by that extension the team will do better.

“ Vettori and Murali can run through sides on their own. ”
“ Our domestic bowlers must be given the best chance to succeed. ”
Shruti@rcb: Given our strong batting line up we can afford to play two spinners in the XI. In the worst case scenario, a spin friendly pitch can help them contain rampaging batsmen. In the best case scenario, they'll be taking wickets for fun at each end, making Bangalore an impenetrable fortress.
Monish Moorthy: T20 and the IPL especially is a batsman friendly format. Experienced international players can hold their own in the format but the domestic players, especially bowlers need all the help they can get. The homeground pitch has to be such that even our weakest links are dangerous on it.

The Game is about how you end and not how you start, so it is important to win and it doesn't matter how your gonna do it as long as we win.So there is no wrong in playing to our strengths !

vittori can do more than privious matches.
15 Apr 2012
Its not only about domestic players clicking in.! Team compositions and most importantly recent performances is all what it matters! Murali and Daniel are the best bowling options even on 20Th over.
15 Apr 2012
Since we have lost last 2 matches it is better to play foreign players than domestic players. I feel its not the time to experiment and we have already seen the effect of experimenting in the 19th over...
15 Apr 2012
Guys…this will be one of my last posts on RCB forum. I have lost all respect for Team RCB for the way they lost the game to Chennai. Virat Kohli has won us many matches and he should be excused for bowling the penultimate over which went for 28 runs. Vinay Kumar should have been given the chance to bowl the 19th over and he would have done a much better job to bowl Chennai out of the match. I like Vettori, he is calm, humble, patient, and a great team player. I just do not like his style of relaxed captaincy. He indulged in defensive cricketing tactics and we payed the price for it. Anil Kumble the captain would have finished Chennai off a long time back. It is my sincere request to the team management that Vettori the captain and the player be dropped from the team. Andrew McDonald should replace Vettori and A.B.DeVilliers be made the captain. The four overseas players can be Gayle, McDonald, A.B.DeVilliers, and Muralitharan. A.B is the captain of the current South African one-day team and they have been winning consistently. He is building a team who seem like the hot favorites for the next world cup in Australia. Vettori seems more like a reluctant captain; he isn’t even the captain of New Zealand team anymore. Besides, he announced his retirement from T-20 games for NZ. Team RCB requires a captain as well as players who come from winning teams. New Zealand does not even come close to competing with their Australian counterparts or for that matter even against the South Africans who choked against NZ in World Cup 2011. Our champ Muralitharan bowled like a tiger because he knows what it is to be a part of a winning team (1996 World Cup Champions). Vettori’s batting is so bizarre and predictable as he always seem to move across the stumps and play it on the leg side. Opposition teams notice such things and bowl to a plan and he is found wanting most of the time. Saurav Tiwary has been a major disappointment for 1.6 million reasons. They should drop him and keep him on the ### where he belongs. Pujara is talented and they must make proper use of him. Mayank’s innings yesterday was more like a fluke than real steady batsman-ship. Happy for him though and I wish he plays many more innings like that but with more steady hands. Team RCB should drop Vettori and make A.B. the captain and bring in McDonald in place of Vettori; McDonald is a better batsman who plays straight and can be used in the opening slot or even in the middle overs. McDonald can also bowl a decent line and length and is a great fielder as well. Team RCB has two decent left arm spin bowlers like Syed Mohammad and Appanna. One of them could be used to bowl with Murali. I wish Team RCB all the very best and hope they can be a little bit more innovative than being so predictable. They should try this team combination and see what happens: Gayle Pujara Kohli Andrew McDonald A.B.D Kaif/ Saurav Tiwary Mayank Syed Mohammad Vinay Kumar Zak Murali The bowlers can be as follows: Zak- left arm medium fast Vinay- right arm medium fast Murali- right arm off-spinner Syed Mohammad- left arm spinner Andrew McDonald- right arm medium Gayle- atleast 2 overs of slow right arm spin

Pitch should be supportive to both Batsman and bowlers.....so yes, Bangalore pitch needs a change..
13 Apr 2012
It is so disappointing to see my team losing the game after such a fantastic performance. Guys, Virat deserve our support... Virat did his best; but it wasn't his day on the field... Right now, our team requires our support and for the 1st time I hated television for showing Virat after that 19th over... his morale is completely down. I feel for you Virat.
13 Apr 2012
I agree..as seen in the last few matches Murali and Dan has done a good job with the ball so they should be kept on the side. And Tiwary should be dropped...he hasn't made any useful contribution with the bat...Guys we have to win from now on!!! You have your fans prayers and support...don't let us down PLEASE
13 Apr 2012
Give Captaincy to Virat, we will be having one more Slot free for Abroad Player, Include Dilshan in Squard, he can spin the ball, and pick the wickets at crucial time.
13 Apr 2012
vettori should be step down from captaincy ,so tat young virat gets chance to lead and other foreign player gets a chance
12 Apr 2012
y these players are in the team tiwary,pujara and batkal ...i mean tell me a single match till date in which they have made some useful contribution
12 Apr 2012
19th 20th overs of both innings was a joke! What were you guys thinking?? After our first win, I thought we will never loose any match from now, and it would be record for itself. Now, I so wish if even will we finish in top3, anyways as my other friend here said, we are still with you and will be with you!.... Do not for gods sake put us down on Sunday, I shall be there right at stadium!
12 Apr 2012
as why they are not allowing dilshan ,nannes to play man
12 Apr 2012
i am just shocking about the team management of rcb
12 Apr 2012
friends we just cant blame batsman we must blame vettori for just 18th over... that why he allowed to give bowling to kohli as he is not a regular bowller for rcb.. i just got shocked and my mood are just off now as rcb lost today.... sad....
12 Apr 2012
what was gayle doing warmaing the benches....??!!! he should have bowled..!! RCB itz high tym u improve your bowling attack and get some good indian players..!! but still we all are with you...!! letz keep it going..:)
12 Apr 2012
I feel for Virat Kohli - he shouldn't have been given the responsibilty of bowling second last over - and we also lost because Vinay Kumar had a 4 no ball in the last over. I'm stunned thought we had this one in the bag
12 Apr 2012
FLASH NEWS: Chennai are overwhelmed to the core and have decided to crown Kohli the Match of the Match! Sad, sad... I don't deserve this blood pressure seriously!
12 Apr 2012
kohili is a wast player in rcb he gave 36 runs in 2 overs if he did not gave rcb will win
12 Apr 2012
we have a worldclass murali and vettori....chennai is good pitch to support spinners....
12 Apr 2012
yes...I think RCB can afford to play an extra experinced foreign given that they have such a classy and best batting lineup in IPL...!
12 Apr 2012
i think chinnaswamy stadium is good for spinners as we can see murali was able to pick up nearly 3 wickets in the first match and in second match vettori gave a break through to rcb by breaking the partnership between gautam and kallis .so, i suggest u to bowl more of the overs by vettori and murali.
12 Apr 2012
quality and experience is the biggest treasure in the world!! and to have it in the form of vettori and murali is a blessing!1
11 Apr 2012
the pitch is fine with Gayle,Vettori
11 Apr 2012
Vettori and Murali 2 world class bowlers fine wit it
11 Apr 2012
We must make the best use of the team we have.. So yes, the pitch must be made a spin-friendly one.. and with the legendary duo in our side.. Matches would turn our way!! :D
11 Apr 2012
Well not only the two DAn Vettori
11 Apr 2012
actuaaly the spinners lik murali and daniel are world class spinners so it will sitable foe dem to stay in playong 11 team and turn the match easily and blore pitch is suitable for spinners
11 Apr 2012
THE SPINNERS OF RCB LIKE MURALI AND VETTORI CAN CHANGE THE MATCH SYSTEM .THEY CAN TURN MATCH EASILY ...
11 Apr 2012
Yeah..Manish Moorthy has a point over here. The domestic bowlers too must get a chance in IPL. Because IPL is the only forum for these local or domestic bowlers where they can come up with their level best and secure their positions in the National Team Of India and also they can prove their mettle..
11 Apr 2012
yeah she is correct . as we cant have a team of only batsmen . as it is a game of minimum overs and we need fast and early wickets in it . and spinners are the best for it as fast bowlers balls can get fast boundaries to batsmen .
10 Apr 2012
please kaif is a good player
10 Apr 2012
10 Apr 2012
v do have domestic criketers veri much.if the overc players aren't playing any role wat iz the point???
10 Apr 2012
THEY ARE THE BEST IN THE WORLD
10 Apr 2012
chinnaswamy pitch has always helped the spinners...
10 Apr 2012
Spinners can change the whole game...we already saw in the RCB match against DD !
09 Apr 2012
its just not about IPL!! we need to have that kind of pitches even host test matches but for now we have the best stadium
09 Apr 2012
T20 is a batsman's game, but in order to balance the game between the batsmen and bowlers, the pitch should assist spin which makes the batsman think for hitting the ball against the spin or not, and spin bowling in T20 is evidently better than pace bowling (atleast economy-wise) and this could also prevent any occuring of one sided matches
09 Apr 2012
it is a good pitch for spinners and bowlers get the right bounce and spin
09 Apr 2012
yes
09 Apr 2012
bangalore is super place for play cricket. lots of people in bangalore like cricket........ i like, love cricket...and support our team "R.C.B"....
09 Apr 2012
we will win for sure
09 Apr 2012
It should benefit home team...
09 Apr 2012
I HOPE THIS TIME RCB HAS GOOD TEAM TO ACHIEVE THERE TARGET
08 Apr 2012
i think this year the pitch is quite helpful for Spin bowlers..
08 Apr 2012
Going by, how the pitch played on the first day, the pitch is tailor made for Murali.
08 Apr 2012
They are perfect duo during the 7 to 15 over mark chocking up the flow of runs and not allowing the opposition to take charge as the middle overs in T20 are vital!!!!
08 Apr 2012
Should Chris gayle and ABDevillers open batting for RCB in coming games?
08 Apr 2012
bowling is the main key for RCB.. we can defend easily with positive attitude..
08 Apr 2012
Defend is always best
08 Apr 2012
Absolutely, we must play to our strengths.
08 Apr 2012
huhuui
08 Apr 2012
after watching yesterday's match i felt so..
08 Apr 2012
I think its more useful
08 Apr 2012
I totally agree with this :)
08 Apr 2012
murali at turning track can tumble any batting line up
08 Apr 2012
when we have world class spiners ,then why to take risk with newcomers.
08 Apr 2012
its right
08 Apr 2012
it is right....................
08 Apr 2012
vettori and muralitharan are world class spinners
08 Apr 2012
yup muttiah and dan are a awesome combination. i feel we should have 6 overs with vinay and zaheer, 8 overs with the spinners and then 4 overs with Patel and kohli. 2 overs to finish the 20 overs with vinay and zaheer.
08 Apr 2012
u r rite ..
07 Apr 2012
murali and vettori can.....
07 Apr 2012
we have world class spinners so we should aid them
07 Apr 2012
we must aid our spiners
07 Apr 2012
obsolutely i agree wid dis.........
07 Apr 2012
we should start bowl from murali wid zaher
07 Apr 2012
as we have good spinners in our line up the pitch can be spinner friendly so that the spinners like dany and muruli can take wickets
07 Apr 2012
if the openers starts off well for first six overs then theirs pressure on the bowling side if the bowlers starts off well then their is no doubt that the rcb will win
07 Apr 2012
Muralidaran and Vettori are brilliant for this ground.
07 Apr 2012
But it will be difficult to decide between Dirk Nannes and Murali. Both are good bowlers capable of taking wickets. The Fast bowlers we have aren't too good :(
07 Apr 2012
VEETORI IS A GREAT CAPTAIN AND HE BOWLING WITH LEADING WICKET TAKER OF INTERNATIONAL CRICKET MUTTIAH MURALIDHARAN CAN TURN THE HEAD ON
07 Apr 2012
YEA, it should but it might fire back at us as our batsmen might struggle if the opposition have quality spinners too!
07 Apr 2012
to show the power of spin in T20
06 Apr 2012
dilshan and gayle will rockkkk in opening
06 Apr 2012
nooooppeee
06 Apr 2012
we will boune back as pitch will b alwys awsome for rcb
06 Apr 2012
if both play
06 Apr 2012
pitch curator should keep pitch Dry
06 Apr 2012
spinners have a very vital role!!!! rcb rockzzzzzzzz!!!! :)
06 Apr 2012
YES
06 Apr 2012
easily one of the best batting line ups in the ipl-5,so the bowling has to be our concern..with vettori and murali along with syed we can rip through the oppositions on a spin friendly wicket
06 Apr 2012
Need some exp for spin bowling on this wicket and who more than Vettori and Murali to do the job.
06 Apr 2012
nice
06 Apr 2012
go rcb go win the ipl cup
06 Apr 2012
FOR!
06 Apr 2012
u r right
05 Apr 2012
Considering that we have the best spinners in the world, i think it will work to our advantage.
05 Apr 2012
defend
05 Apr 2012
yea ..:))
05 Apr 2012
both vettori and murali can run through any batting line up if the pitch aids them and definately our local players mostly are spinners and pitch will definately help them too. secondly the indian pitches are not suited for pace bowling and neither they can be fully modified for pace attack as in australia or south africa and the pitches lack the pace. hence we can opt to strengthen our strong spin attck.

Indian spinners should be given more chance.....
11 Apr 2012
What we are missing to address is that the pitch preparation is not under the control of RCB it is done by KSCA and BCCI. We play on what is provided. We cannot influence that outcome. Remember all the trouble shane warne went through for pushing for a slow turning pitch??? Also the changing the pitch as per a teams whims and fancies is not possible on a short notice. If we change this pitch for an all pace attack remember that we play england in home at Chinnaswamy for a test match!!!
11 Apr 2012
Yeahhh, Manish Moorthy has a good point! Domestic bowlers should have a shot at trying to go far, why put them down?
10 Apr 2012
RCB consistent batting performances can lead us to the Cup. No doubt spin duo combination is deadly but that leaves little flexibility in terms of 4 foreign players as it fixes 2 slots and with AB as wk it leaves only 1 place open for foreign player. Given the rule of 4 foreign player would love to have local bowling combination.
09 Apr 2012
See As Murali Is Retired ..So if He Bowls Well It Does'nt get Credit To Anyone .. If Any Domestic Player Nowl It May Get Credit To India
08 Apr 2012
let it be the same pitch.spin always does'nt work in t20.vettori and murali can do the spinning work well so no prob....
08 Apr 2012

08 Apr 2012
yes
08 Apr 2012
pls dont spoil the game as they do in chennai were u should search for runs..let the pitch be pacy and we shall have a grt match..more over murali and vettori can spin the ball even on glass so no prob of having a pacy pitch
08 Apr 2012
spin can be tackled easily in India so y not opt for a pacy wicket
07 Apr 2012
People like to see lot of sixes in this format not the fall of wickets
07 Apr 2012
murali and vettori can rocj in this kind of pitch they have a talent of doing so much from the ball
07 Apr 2012
its not abt spinners
07 Apr 2012
zahir mithun
07 Apr 2012
dan n murli cant play together coz v need gayle dilshan n devilliers in d squad n dat leaves only 1 overseas slot open n it must b dan coz he knows d conditions better n is a better batsman dan murli.. n spin friendly tracks myt sometimes back fire on rcb only so its better to have a neutral track n moreover dan can spin it on anytrack n he doesn always rely on spin...
07 Apr 2012
we cant opt for both murali and vettori together, since RCB requires dilshan,ABD and gayle..so its better to have seam favoured pitch.with much grass on it..
06 Apr 2012
either spin friendly or not they are word class bowlers they can do well in any conditions,we should prepare pitch that will aid domestic bowlers
06 Apr 2012
The Bangalore Pitch has always been regarded as one of the better pitches in the country...I personally feel the bounce the wicket has to offer,is something thats always been a bonus to us...from the days of Dale Steyn
06 Apr 2012
Our Ground has always helped Seamers more than Spinners.
06 Apr 2012
dmstc blwrs wil do der best in ipl 2012
06 Apr 2012
ya i wni same pitch we used for CLT20
06 Apr 2012
preparing pitch should be left to curator no one should influence him....chinnaswamy stadium is a batting paradise and should be left same...RCB is known for its sportive play and for sportsman spirit...so our pitch should left same way...not like chennai and others who prepare pitches accordin 2 their team.
06 Apr 2012
you don't need to doctor the pitch...because vettori,murlidharan have suceeded even on deadest of pitchs across the world.
05 Apr 2012
ya i agree, our new youth bowler may have problem on such flat track and particularly when boundaries are so short
05 Apr 2012
spin is always not a good option both, spinners and non spinners shall be given a chance
05 Apr 2012
"vettori and murali are in so if it is not spin track then its gona help fast bowler too...which is an overall advantage"
05 Apr 2012
